The full-back’s agent talks about the rumors of the player moving to Arsenal, but he says there is no deal yet.

There have been some rumors that defender Kieran Tierney is leaving Scottish Premier League club Celtic to go to England to play for Arsenal.

But today, his agent Allan Preston spoke to the press about the chances of the player leaving to play for the Gunners or staying to win another title in Scotland.

“I know Kieran really well, I had some food with him the other day, he is such an unassuming young man,” he told Football London about why he would choose with his heart and not with his wallet.

“He is wealthy at the moment but he doesn’t possess a watch, he isn’t into material things like this.”

The agent explained: “He still hangs about his pals from when he was a youngster, he sponsors his local pub team where his pals play and he’s not into his designer gear or anything like that.”

“As the guys say he loves Celtic, he absolutely loves Celtic.

The 22-year-old is a product of the Celtic youth system and has only played for the Scottish team since debuting professionally in 2015.

He was also part of Scotland’s national team U18 and U19, before earning a call to the senior squad in 2016.
